The occurrence of atropisomers among strigolactone analogues is reported for the first time. While the rate of interconversion for this specific derivative is sufficiently high to warrant full bioavailability, these findings are of high importance for the development of new analogues that could lead to stable atropisomers with different bioactivity.
